"All the time up to today, we [the Armenians] were humiliated, insulted for being Armenians; we heard people use [the term] Armenian as a curse. We heard it and we still keep hearing it as such in the newspapers, TVs, birth registration offices; [we hear it] from public servants all the way to the highest authorities. Sometimes we were treated as if we were not citizens of this country, but migrants from somewhere else. We still witness all these, this structure and this understanding; this darkness continues to produce murderers out of babies … Today, we see here the babies who have turned into murderers; [but] where is the darkness that created them [in the first place]?
The darkness I point to is not unknown. You can find pieces of this darkness in the [Turkish] Governorship, the Gendarmarie, the Armed Forces, the National Intelligence Agency, the Police, the Government, the Opposition Party, the [minority] parties that do not have a seat in the parliament, and even in the media and [some] non-governmental organizations. Their names and their positions are known. They continuously create murderers from babies and they do it in order to serve Turkey."
